Hi experts,

I downloaded the gfs2 STABLE branch from

I compile with 2.6.18 kernel, but fails since it support >=2.6.29
however when I compile with kernel), mainline 2.6.29 
tags, or the kernel, I got following error like:

/home/wwg/dir/wwg/work/gfs2.git/gnbd-kernel/src/gnbd.c:1054: error: 
‘struct gendisk’ has no member named ‘dev’
make[3]: *** [/home/wwg/dir/wwg/work/gfs2.git/gnbd-kernel/src/gnbd.o] 
Error 1
make[2]: *** [_module_/home/wwg/dir/wwg/work/gfs2.git/gnbd-kernel/src] 
Error 2

so which kernel I should compile with?
